The Arboretum grounds will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC on SATURDAY, JUNE 10 for ART in the Garden.
Country rocker Nikki Briar will get your boots stompin’ and hands clappin’ in the garden this summer, guaranteed! This proud Garden State Cowgirl has the heart of a country music superstar and has had the honor of performing with or open for national southern rock and country acts including Lindsay Ell, Blackberry Smoke, Tim McGraw, Keifer Sutherland, Jerrod Niemann, the Marshall Tucker Band, Lorrie Morgan, the Outlaws, Blackhawk, Steven Lee Olson, Big Country, and many more.
Briar has also taught at the New Jersey Workshop of the Arts, sings for the New Jersey National Guard and is a proud Army wife and mother. When asked why she decided to pursue a career in country music, Briar simply said: “I love the passion and the truth in country music. I love the story songs that can either make you laugh or bring you to tears. After all, music is about emotion, and I want my audience to feel something when they hear me sing.”
